Is There a Cure For Cancer? By: Jia Feng

You’re at the hospital. While walking, a salted droplet started going down your cheek. Finally down to your neck. You’re sweating every second, scared of dropping your files onto the marbled floors, hearing doctors and nurses telling victims what sickness they have received. You sit down on the disinfected seats and pray to god you didn’t get cancer. You think to yourself "mom had cancer, everyone had cancer. Is it my turn now?" The doctor calls you, you’re out of your daydreaming and he leads you over to his office. There is a clump of air in your throat but you couldn’t get it out. Your hands get sweaty, the doctor analysed you and he scanned you. Waiting in his office the doctor comes back with no expression. His voice and actions were all in slow motion then a answer comes out, “ Miss, sorry to say this but you have breast cancer, you can still live for 3- 6 months. Please contact your family” your heart stops the clump in your throat couldn’t take it anymore it burst, your tears come out you can’t stop. You call your child and say “ Sorry, I have breast cancer…”

Nearly 1.7 million cases of breast cancer were reported in 2012, and 1 in 8 women in the states were diagnosed with cancer. That is about 12% of the women population.

The Process of Cancer

When cancer starts, it starts with normal cells, it will gradually become abnormal which is when the old and damaged cells don’t die when they are suppose to die. The healthy cancer cells will overproduce which will lead to solid tumors. Tumors are masses of tissue. When you have a blood cancer like leukemia it is not likely to have solid tumors. Cancer tumors are malignant, this means that it can spread or invade into other cells to cause them to be cancer cells.

The FDA and AMA argue that there is ‘no scientific experience’ that a natural substance can cure cancer every single try with no doubt that it works. They didn’t find a substance that can be useful in cancer treatment.

Natural Cures for Cancer

There are natural substances that have been proven that can treat cancer but they should not be done if you not a expert or a scientist, however. Studies and evidence shows that there are lots of chemicals that can treat cancer safely.

The vegetable beetroot is very useful in treating cancer since it can remove the deadly tumors created by cancer. Beet juice is known to treat cancer cells and it removes them slowly.

The Brandt Grape Cure, is when you eat purple grapes with the skin and the seeds from the fruit without any other treatment but studies haven’t found out a reason why this treatment works for treating cancer.

Lastly the Budwig diet, this diet is when you have flaxseeds and cottage cheese or milk mixed together to form a paste that the patient is going to eat. This diet can work but has to be done correctly or it wouldn’t work as well. This diet was found by Dr. Budwig. While researching about ways to treat cancer he have found the polyunsaturated (PUFA) fatty oils in the flaxseeds, PUFA is a major component in cellular membranes. This helps re-energise the healthy cells and not the cancer cells.

Cancer Survival

Studies shows that cancer survival rate has gone up for both gender but the survival rate on women has raised drastically throughout the years. The highest cancer survival rate has gone up for melanoma the survival rate from patients says that 97% of the time they will live for another year; however, 90% of victims will survive for 5 years. Finally, 89% of people will live for 10 years. Furthermore, breast cancer patients 96% of people lived for 1 year, 87% have lived for 5 years, and lastly, 78% have survived for 10 years.

After reading this I hope you have a deeper understanding of the process of cancer and the natural cures for cancer. During this essay, I have talked about melanoma and the survival rate of this disease. If you have a family member that has it, and you are frightened every time to go to the doctors, please don’t be nervous or even scared, you need to be hopeful and shine brightly for your next check up.
